I'd like to say that it's some sort of a ferrule machined to spec for NASA that I fitted to the pump but it's a section cut off of an ink pen. I believe the pen was advertising Prozac.

I cut some threads on the pieces before I glued it just in case Loctite exaggerated on the spec sheet. Either way it's not coming apart.

Question for the experts or not so experts who know.

Your stuck on the side of the road, your battery has been disconnected to make a repair and ontop of that the temp switch for the fan has failed.

So now you cant do the 15 minute run up without over heating, but your FI supposedly needs it.

How much damage are you gonna do if you just ride the bike back out?

Pull the wires off the temp sensor, hold them together and let the fan run for 15 minutes.

as far as I know the 15mn is only when you remap the ECU. disconnecting the battery shouldn't need any 15mn reset.

I never even knew about the 15 minute idle reset till about a month after I had mine and apparently neither did the dealer. So it wasn't done for a while. It may run a little crappy due to the O2 being off a bit but damage?? I doubt it. Just don't allow it to overheat with the failed fan switch.

Akra Ti and header install-2012 690R

I checked around and found the combo header and slip on is backordered everywhere. I was wondering who has installed just the slipon vs can+header. And differences? Did you install after break in or put the system on first? Do you know of anyplace that has complete system in stock?

Akra can on since day one and 0 miles on the odo and stock odo with Akra map. No problems thus far aside from those caused by myself.

Idling your 690 for 15 minutes will do nothing but heat it up unless the ecu has been instructed (via tune ecu or the XC-4 tool) to reset adaptations.

tuneboy does it too. Once i went for a ride and forgot the snorkle ontop of the filter, bike was ok for 45 minutes but then it went ultra schitzo and it would run a few hundred yards then stall. Anyway the only way to get it running right was reset adaptive settings to get the parameters back in line.

Dahmit...

I have a question about the fan switch. In the previous mega thread, there was mention of using a DRz thermostat switch which turns on the fan at a lower temperature.

So, I ordered one, and it doesn't fit my '08 -- neither the thread or the electrical are compatible. Is the '08 different than other years in this regard?

In other news, I ordered some EBC front brake pads, and they must have shrunk in the mail because they're too small. I seem to recall some information about the correct pad to order from EBC. In the mean time I've just replaced them at great expense with stock pads. Does anyone have handy the correct EBC part number?

At the same time, I ordered clutch plates & springs. The plates fit, but the springs came in a package of 6 and were smaller.

So, is the '08 just different than later models, or are EBC part numbers just farked up?

EBC part number is wrong, I emailed them 10 times about that, they never bothered to correct it. It seems EBC's part for the 690 SMC is what it should be for the 690E or R.

Meanwhile:
Front brake: KTM Part No 60013030100, DP Brakes Part No (www.dp-brakes.com): DP623 and RDP623
Rear brake: Brembo Part No: SBS-S-40GF, DP Brakes Part No DP622 and SDP622

As for EBC, their web site is an ORGY, totaly disorganised. Its impossible to find relevant info in there. Wonder what king of nuthead came up with such a mess.
